"Researchers often overlook the importance of land records as a source for genealogical information. But significant, often hidden, clues can be found in land and property records, and they form an invaluable resource for research in the United States... The more you know about land and property records and how to locate them, the more you will learn about your ancestors. [This book] is the most comprehensive and useful review of land and property research for genealogists to date"--Book jacket.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
